    The below contest is sponsored by HansGolden and travelkid on behalf of two anonymous fellow MP'ers.

    The premise of this giveaway is quite simple. Spend 5 minutes voting for 26 videos and get a chance to win a free frequent flier airline ticket in the US and Canada (on any of the three major alliances at the 25K level).

    Your chances will be extraordinarily high as this is a very short contest (only runs through August 15 at midnight CET). Also, the number of entrants will be capped at 850. This leaves you with extraordinarily high odds. But you'd better get moving!

    You're voting for the videos of some buddies of ours and in exchange for your time, we're giving you the chance to win an airline ticket. I am personally providing the ticket, I will take care of randomly choosing the winner, and you'll contact me when you're ready for me to book the ticket with my miles.

    If our buddies get the most votes in this contest, they'll win 1 million SAS EuroBonus miles. We'd consider your votes a favor!

    Before I go into the procedure for entering the giveaway, I should let you know that you can give yourself a second entry to the giveaway by sharing this giveaway with your friends on Facebook. Just share the link for this thread on FB by clicking here. Make sure and include the fact that you've both voted and shared in your comment per #6 below.

    Here's the procedure:
    1. Go to the first video (my favorite!)
    2. Click “Login with Facebook”
    3. Click “Allow” (don't worry, it won't post to your Facebook without your permission)
    4. Vote for the video!
    5. Repeat #4 for all the rest linked below (I'd suggest only opening 6 tabs at a time. When I opened more, Chrome slowed to a crawl.)
    6. Leave a reply to this thread saying that you've voted for all the videos (Please preface it with the word “Entry” so that it's clear it's an entry.)

    T&C/Rules/Fine Print: I reserve the right to make any rule clarifications at any time. I do this only to protect against any unforeseen technicalities or loopholes. I'm honest and will deliver what I've promised above. This contest is running simultaneously on FT, MP, and Facebook and one winner will be chosen from entries at all three places. You may only enter once across all locations. If the winner is chosen from an FT or MP posting, the winner will be asked for their FB name to verify the vote. If you have one FT account, but have family that have multiple FB accounts, use their FB accounts to vote, then note in your entry how many people you voted with, giving each voter's First name and Last initial.

    Entry here as well. Voted for all of them, although the alarm clock was my favorite. :)

    Incidentally, you need to uncheck the box to post on facebook, otherwise it will post on your wall (it's checked by default).

    Wow, some very nice videos that you have here. And a nice contest, a very generous offer you have made,
    I, too, refuse to use Facebook.
    Good luck to all, and if nothing else, watch the vids.

    As always, gotta look at the odds now... Takeoff had 4200 points when this first started, now it's 6650. Every vote seems to add 50 points, so that's 133 votes?

    Odds are not bad... assuming everybody votes for every video, we can expect Takeoff to go to 42,500 before it's capped?

    ~930 votes needed to take the lead. No problem, right MPers?

    Gold Jury boost would be nice. Working on it. ;)
